We’re just a week into summer vacation, and already the kiddos are driving me a bit crazy. They love having more free-play, and mostly get along just great – but they also get after each other a lot with plenty of arguments. Luckily, I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve and usually can change stressful situations into MOMents when needed!
Part of me wonders if this is exactly what my parents did when I was a kid. So many summer memories included enjoying popsicles – and Budget Saver Twin Pops are PERFECT because you just pop them in half to share! In fact, did you know that the Twin Pop was invented back during the great depression? That way two kids could split one for just a nickel. Although Budget Saver’s Rainbow Array assortment – packing six flavors in the big clear bag – started later in 1989.
These are just the ticket to create a MOMent – that’s short for ‘Mom-Moment’, meaning a stressful, frustrating or even just crazy situation that us Moms can quickly resolve.
Today was just such a time when I had to make a MOMent – my kids were fighting over who had what blocks, of course, and couldn’t seem to calm down enough to just talk it out. I pulled out a pack of Budget Saver Twin Pops for morning snack, let them pick colors/flavors and divide the tasty twin pops, then they spent awhile enjoying their special treat. They even were getting along well discussing who picked what type, which was each of their favorites and whatnot. I loved it! After that, they were calm enough to go back to the playroom and figure out the block issue.
And guess what, you can even win a GRAND PRIZE with the #TwinPopsContest – just show your sweet MOMent with Budget Saver Twin Pops using that hashtag on Twitter or Instagram! Your entry may be selected as a weekly winner, or even the Grand Prize Winning MOMent!
